However, I was tired of psudo-Janeway being stubborn to the point of stupidity. For someone with the smarts of a science officer, how come she couldn't except the logic they were going in the wrong direction?
My guess is that the writers know perfectly well that there isn't really a plausibe hope for Voyager to survive the endless battles on the journey home. Merely continuing on the journey is every bit as senselessly stupid as Janeway is in this episode. I think a lot of them accept the idea that the power of positive thinking can overcome all obstacle. Why not? They see no talent people in creative jobs every day, after all. But this episode is about the tragedy of failure and the triumph of death, so Janeway's cockeyed optimism doesn't get validated by the power of script.
